Yeah I grew up near Meadville also and it BLOWS me away that the Boys played there, its a TINY little hick town in the middle of nowhere. Here is a link to a past thread of the whole run through PA in 71', A FINE bunch of shows ,well worth checking out, Thank you Cliff!!!

hey, I am from a "TINY little hick town in the middle of nowhere"...it just doesn't have a college...

though there is good reason why I referred to it as "pennsyltucky" while growing up...

Yes, it is a nice run of shows. I have had Scranton (04-13), Pittsburgh (04-12) and Franklin & Marshall (04-10) in the rotation for some time but for some reason I missed the Allegheny show. (possibly one of those mental notes to put it aside for later.)

This eve, I wanted to listen to the Bucknell show (04-14) since I have only heard it a few times, but I am having major search problems. So no Bucknell, though in order to keep with the PA spirit I am beginning with the Civic Arena in Pittsburgh (04-12). The first show at the igloo.

Also, I see by checking that date that they played two sets at the Stanley Theatre on 69-02-07, which I don't believe I have heard. One path keeps leading to another... But first, April of 71.

tidioute, in warren county, is pretty hick all right...

the french part of northwestern PA...

I have been there many times, though I know the sheffield area much better since my father worked there for many years.

So I come from ridgway in elk county; which is pretty hick itself.

Funny, it is probably 30-40 miles between the two as a crow flies but by roads it is over 60.

regarding those shows, I listened to Pittsburgh (71-04-12)again last night and really enjoyed it. I am really getting into their playing during winter/spring 71. I need to listen to Bucknell today.

And to phidelio regarding some europe 72 shows returning to the archive: I am really getting into this one from Munich on May 18th.
